Learning Through Music

Music gives a soul to the universe,
Wings to the mind,
Flight to the imagination…
And life to everything.
~Plato

Do you remember how you learned your ABCs? From my experience, I believe the power of music goes far beyond a few do-ray-me’s and the ABCs – it’s an incredibly effective tool for learning, especially in learning languages. Not only is music an immersive, enjoyable experience, I’ve found for both young learners and adults, music helps stimulates interest and helps students better process and retain new information. Please find below a small selection videos students have found useful. Stay tuned for more videos and lesson plans I’ve used!
